Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has warned his Manchester United counterpart, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, that “nobody can survive bad results”.
Solskjaer is facing increased speculation over his future following the 5-0 defeat to Liverpool, with United sitting in seventh place in the Premier League.
He has reportedly been given three games to avoid the sack, starting with Saturday’s trip to Tottenham Hotspur.
Guardiola who took one year off after leaving Barcelona knows about the intensity surrounding coaching top clubs.
“If I don’t have good results, I’ll be treated the same. Every manager. Nobody can survive bad results, no one. So expectations are so high at United, you have to win.
“For a long time the team didn’t win the Premier League, they do and they work to get results in terms of titles because their history demands it. When I took over Barcelona, I knew, I had to win otherwise another manager will be in this position.
“I’m saying the most obvious things that everyone knows. And at that moment that it happened I’m pretty sure Ole is surrounded by people, family, the staff to be close to them and try to win the next game. There are no more secrets than that,” Guardiola told a press conference.
